Christmas Fun: Week Three

Friday night, we packed up hot cocoa goodies and some cookies and headed over to David's parents to carol! Of course, we only sang one song - but they did not mind! Then we had yummy treats together.


After their house, we drove to see some Christmas lights! I always love doing this!! And, this house was a favorite because of the gigantic Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and oh my, the entire yard was covered with decorations!

I have done lots of baking this past week - we had a family Christmas dinner with David's family before we left for Colorado.

And, Samuel discovered how much fun it was to pull on ornaments this week!

We experienced the Nativity and I did lots of wrapping. Now, we're on our way to Colorado!

PS: For those of you who wanted to see my wrappings from last year - here you go.

Monica,
It is so nice to see that we aren't the only family who goes and looks at lights. We have always done that since I was a kid and it is something we have always done with our kids.
Have a safe trip to Colorado.

I appreciate your willingness to try so many activities with 3 littles. I think that they learn so many behavioral skills and manners when exposed to different situations.
Safe travel wishes to your family. Hope you have a cozy cabin Christmas. We will look forward to hearing all about it.

That looks like a wonderful week. We did the lights this past week too and it is so great to see it through our children's eyes.

Have a safe and wonderful trip in Colorado!
